I think the obvious source of the "shimmy" is the rim itself. If the rim is not completely true (which the one you showed is not), it will most likely be felt at the steering wheel. This probably won't affect your performance, but it will affect the feel. There's an easy way to tell if there's too much play in a tie rod end ... that being, is there ...

Thanks for all the responses. We found the problem. I ordered the rear tires for the car that were the correct size...I didn't realize that they had an incorrect sized tire on the vehicle when I bought it. So I ended up with two different diameter tires on an AWD vehicle which I found out doesn't work. Apparently running different sized tires on AWD vehicles ...

P0105 is a MAF electrical fault. This is most likely the real issue going on, as without the MAF (or intermittent MAF signal), it would drive the computer batty trying to keep the engine running normally. Your description lends right to this. Considering the fault code, I'd suggest you take a look at the wiring at the MAF and up into the wiring harness. ...

all Although the explanation as to why the system vibrates at wheel frequency instead of propshaft frequency is a bit of a mystery, I have tracked the source of the problem to the transmission itself having very badly worn bearings. The only remedy is to overhaul or replce the transmission. Thank you

High speed vibration on a FWD vehicle could be wheel bearings, but you've already replaced those. Mostly likely is bad wheels and/or tires. Out of balance, uneven road force, or a bent wheel could all cause high speed vibrations. Uneven road force means that the tire doesn't exert the same amount of pressure at all points around the tire (imagine if a ...
